Acquire will restart and the event will then be activated.

Whenever the monitored value changes Acquire will write to the ‘Copy to Field’ field.

In this example if Scratchpad Variable 3555 changes then Acquire will write a “1″ to Scratchpad Variable 3501.

Tip: If the monitored field value needs to be copied to the field, use the “Copy Field” action instead of “Modbus Write”.
